Rhyming words and estimating

Greetings Platypuses,

This week in literacy we shared the Julia Donaldson story Superworm, tried writing riddles for the first time and worked on our awareness of rhyme

Which of these words, rhyme?

dog, hill, log, frog, mud

cat, dog, sat, pin, mat, hat, sit, bat

Have you got any books with rhyming words in? 

In maths we have been learning about estimating. What does it mean to estimate an amount? (to make a sensible guess as to how many there are) 

Ask your adult to put out different amounts of objects and then challenge yourself to estimate the amounts

Please remember to bring PE shoes (plimsoles or trainers) for PE on Monday

I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, playing, talking, homework, Mathletics and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog!

It will be Yellow Team‘s turn for Show and Tell on Tuesday. Please only bring in toys when it is your colour team’s turn for Show and Tell as they can easily get lost 😦

Please wear your PE kit on Monday and make sure all your belongings (school uniform, PE kit, book bag etc.) have your name in/on them. 

I am very impressed with the minibeast projects that you have brought in. It will take some time to have everyone present theirs so if you haven’t had a chance yet be patient…your time will come! 

I look forward to seeing you again on Monday! 🙂
